Genetic signature of population fragmentation varies with mobility in seven bird species of a fragmented Kenyan cloud forest
Habitat fragmentation can restrict geneflow, reduce neighbourhood effective population size, and increase genetic drift and inbreeding in small, isolated habitat remnants. The extent to which habitatExpand

Morphometric and genetic characterization of sympatric populations of Clarias gariepinus and C. anguillaris from Senegal
A sample of African Clarias catfishes from the Senegal River was studied using morphometry, allozyme variation, microsatellites and RFLPs of mitochondrial DNA. They all confirmed the presence of twoExpand

Morphometric and allozyme variation in the African catfishes Clarias gariepinus and C. anguillaris
This study investigated morphological characters and electrophoretic polymorphism at 25 protein loci in nine wild populations of the African clariid catfish Clarias gariepinus and seven wildExpand

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822)
The African catfish Clarias gariepinus is an economically important species, apart from being a model organism in research (Volckaert et al. 1994). Its natural distribution extends all over AfricaExpand

Cross-species amplification of microsatellite primers in passerine birds
Developing species specific microsatellite primers can be avoidedby using existing markers which amplify across species. However,for passerines, such ‘cross-species’ markers are mostly lackingand fewExpand

Gynogenesis in the African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822). III. Induction of endomitosis and the presence of residual genetic variation
Abstract Gynogenesis is thought to be a useful method to generate fully inbred lines in teleost fish. Endomitosis, which refers to the inhibition of first mitosis, should lead to fully homozygousExpand

New Insights on Water Buffalo Genomic Diversity and Post-Domestication Migration Routes From Medium Density SNP Chip Data
The domestic water buffalo is native to the Asian continent but through historical migrations and recent importations, nowadays has a worldwide distribution. The two types of water buffalo, i.e.,Expand

Replication, expression, and fate of foreign DNA during embryonic and larval development of the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus).
The transfer of exogenous DNA in fish represents a powerful strategy to study the regulation of gene expression in vivo. The African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) was chosen for this study because ofExpand

Isolation and characterization of a new suite of microsatellite markers in the European White Stork, Ciconia ciconia
The White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) has an extensive European breeding distribution. There have been significant demographic changes since the 1930s, with country-specific extinctions throughout theExpand

Isolation of microsatellite markers for the endangered Knysna seahorse Hippocampus capensis and their use in the detection of a genetic bottleneck
We report the isolation and characterization of 15 (12 di-, 1 tri- and 2 tetranucleotide) microsatellite markers from Hippocampus capensis , the Knysna seahorse. This marker set allows the detectionExpand
